Other Voices in Derry and Lon­don

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - MUSICNEWS -

Hav­ing staged a gig in New York last year for its 10th birthday cel­e­bra­tions, the Other Voices se­ries con­tin­ues to ex­pand with gigs in Derry and Lon­don next year.

The reg­u­lar Din­gle-based gigs will take place next month, on De­cem­ber 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Artists booked for per­for­mances in the town’s St James’s Church in­clude Vil­lagers, SOAK, The Un­thanks, The Staves and Paul Buchanan, with more to be an­nounced.

Neil Han­non, Jesca Hoop, Django Django and Marina and the Di­a­monds will play the Derry leg at Glass­works on Fe­bru­ary 8th, 9th and 10th, which is to tie in with the city’s UK City of Cul­ture cel­e­bra­tions next year. The Lon­don Other Voices will be at the Bar­bican cen­tre in April, with the line-up to be an­nounced.

The Ticket can ex­clu­sively re­veal that Ai­dan Gillen will re­turn to host the se­ries for his sec­ond year, and also that gui­tarist Aaron Dess­ner of The Na­tional – who played the se­ries in 2010 – will cu­rate an evening at the Din­gle event, which will in­clude soon-to-be-an­nounced artists from the US and Aus­tralia. There will also be an open call for any­one in­ter­ested in play­ing the in­ti­mate IMRO Other Room slot in Din­gle; de­tails will be an­nounced on the of­fi­cial site and the Face­book page soon. other voices. ie
